Exposition of Hebrews Series (Page 4)
Have you entered into the gateway of God laid out in Hebrews 4?
Have you denied that the blood of Jesus has the power to transform you? We must decide whether we will repent and allow God to rescue us or we will be swept away in judgement.
Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will perish by following their example of disobedience. For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Listen to the story and make the decision to covenant with God to trust Him for all things and enter into the rest of God.
Have you trusted in false teachings that allow you to walk in sin or bitterness of heart?
On today’s broadcast, Pastor Ray provides a detailed Biblical explanation of entering into the Sabbath rest of Jesus–not just one day a week, but every day.
Pastor Ray asks the critical question is whether Jesus a wall or a door to you? Jesus is always a wall at first until we’re willing to fully submit and humble our hearts to Him.
We must fix our eyes upon Jesus, which means to fix both our mind and our emotions upon Jesus and NOT HARDEN our Hearts (as the children of Israel did). Remember that fear is a pointer reflecting that you are not fixing your thoughts on Jesus…
Today Pastor Ray asks the question as to whether you are saved or not? Have you been crucified with Christ? Is Jesus totally in charge of your life as demonstrated by your behavior?
The walk with Jesus is NOT about self-improvement or trying harder, it’s simply is being crucified with Jesus and fully given to Him, where everything in our lives is under the Lordship of Jesus.
The reality of the modern church is that Ichabod has been written over much of the church and yet most of unaware that the Holy Spirit has withdrawn and their lampstand has been removed.
Much of the modern western church simply believe in Gnosticism and believe that they can be saved in the midst of sin and that the blood of Jesus does not have the power to transform and change them.
